Part[y]ing Gift
Thursday, October 25, 2007
I'm not too sure if my title of this entry is a mockery or a joke or just to exemplify my cleverness in playing with words.

I'm now in charge of buying a farewell gift to the guy who is leaving my office and readers of this blog must have known who. My workmates and I decided to buy a book for him because we don't know what he likes. I know he dislikes cockroaches, teddy bears and anything that is cute. [What about babies/kids? They are cute too.] But you know buying a book proves to be very difficult because I don't know what books he will like. He only reads hard core history and political books written by Noam Chomsky and the like. That also means he must have read a lot of political books that are in the market which further limits my books choices.

I did a research by asking him 2 questions. One is name me 5 books you have read and another 5 you want to read. His list?

Read
1. The Rise of Modern China
2. Music of Nature - no idea how relevant to politics and psychology
3. 10 Great Educators of Modern Japan
4. The Making of China and Chinese Overseas
5. Modern History of Russia, from Nicholas II to Putin

Want
1. Making Overseas Chinese Legend
2. Japan Foreign Policy, 1945-2003 ... Proactive Policy
3. Creating Entrepreneurial University ...
4. Dreaming in the Universe
5. Perpetual Happiness - Ming Emperor Yongle

After reading the list ... I feel like "hey I should buy him a comic book." A few political books title were running a few lapse in my head and I even thought of going to Kinokuniya to check out but not after he ended the conversation "anything else to ask me? then that's it."

I realised I don't like people telling me that sentence "anything else to ask me." It's annoying and rude. We are not in an interview session though I lied telling him I'm doing a survey on people's reading habit. But is there a necessity to end the conversation like that? I don't like friends telling me that when I just call or message them just to say hi [unless guys that always annoy me like my stalkers...]

I realised again I should buy whatever book I see fit for his farewell gift instead of being so kind hearted asking him and ensuring that the book I will be buying won't either in his bought or read list.

I realised I should just buy him a book called "Why a psychologist needs to see a psychiatrist" or "Why psychologists need to stay in a mental asylum as a patient."

I realised one day he might stumble across this blog and since this is my blog my ranting place I don't think it's necessary to change his nick to some nicer names.

I think I know what book to buy for him. The name of the book would be "Go to Hell" by renaye. Woohoo~ Is there a publisher wants to buy this copyright? The perfect gift for the perfect boyfriend for some girls out there.

I would be buying a book belongs to a genre that he has never touched before "Kama Sutra for the guys and guys."

I would enlighten you guys when I come back from the bookshop tomorrow.

Blue Blue Sky
Wednesday, October 24, 2007
The receptionist returned to work today after her leave yesterday. And she wasn't happy to see the senior officer had switched the unused flat screen computer with his junk with the excuse "My computer is too slow for me to use." The jerk has done all he could to make the junk faster but to no avail and I also don't know why he was docile in changing it. Everyone else was just speechless because whatever we do with the computer - installing antivirus, antispyware, programs, etc - needs permission from our manager. But Uncle [we called the senior officer that because he's the oldest] didn't request for permission even though the flat screen was not in used when my friend left. Uncle told us to keep quiet and we told him to bribe us with free lunch on Fridays. Haha.

The receptionist was quite furious to know that Uncle even took the scanner along with the flat screen when it is for communal use. She turned the junk on to investigate the slowness and we found out a lot of hmmm Not Safe For Work documents - porn pictures. We were all ooh ahh and glued to the screen. And then Uncle somehow cut and paste everything from his email messages to word doc and save it. No wonder his junk is slow - overloaded with documents. There were many many obsolete documents in his junk which further fed our curiosity. I advised her to delete those files before the manager found out. If she found out then she might impose a firewall on all of us because of him. That then won't be fair to us.

As she was deleting the Temporary Internet Files... my head was playing one of Ronan Keating' songs. And then she was telling everyone behind me about some movies and then there went my selective hearing...

She: Hey there's movies here too ... gee ...
Me: What??? Uncle acted in them is it?

Everyone laughed and I got no idea what movie she was talking. And then later I was told she meant blue film. Haha... The jerk and another friend commented I was saying it so innocently and naturally. Haha... It's my natural talent.

And now the junk is fast ... and we can't wait for the manager to come to see the changes in our office. I guess we are all waiting for a free show.

We are evil, amen.

Stupid guys
Monday, October 22, 2007
I'm not trying to discriminate male but I think some guys out there are really stupid and unreliable. Why??? Yea because one guy made me mad at 12 a.m. I was playing game while watching tv as usual and my ex-schoolmate and ex-admirer of mine greeted me via MSN Messenger. I of course replied him with sarcasm because he told me once before that he only says hi to me when he is bored in his hotel room. Hey .. do you think I'm a fluorescent light that you switch on whenever you like? And then for the second or third time he asked me "So have you got yourself a bf?". As usual I feed him "Of course ... so many .. which one you want to know?" He replied "The one you can kiss and hold hands with." My mind went on a rampage. If he were in front of me...I would run over him like a bull elephant.

Actually what really made me was the incident on last Saturday: my god-damn stalker called me at 9.59 a.m. just to ask me if I have been 'taken' by any guys. I made the same crude joke like I did to my senpai... his replied was the same. You called me so bloody earlier just to check on me whether I have been taken? Who the heck are you? Even my mum never asked me if I'm seeing anyone at the moment. Even if yes, I told her to shut up for good. And then I realised I was being too nice to this stalker and decided to end it once for all by telling him IT'S NONE OF UR BIZNES OF MY PRIVATE LIFE... Why the hell he found back my number in the first place? OMG. And then he keeps on saying I need a guy to take care of me? Oh really??? When I asked you for help with my sales ... you turned back on me. What? Just because I'm not 'yours' yet? Who cares? Who cares to have you as a boyfriend when you can't even help a friend?

This is really killing me. Just because I'm a girl doesn't mean I don't need to work hard to find money because simply I'm indispensable - yea 'cause girls are just an accessory to guys right? What? You mean it's wrong to be rich individually? A girl has to combine her wealth with her husband? Or correctly her husband's wealth is her wealth? Who the hell enacted that thinking as a law? Oh yea ... this reminded me of someone who often reads my blog... who always says "I (renaye) don't need money.. I don't think you need money?" If I don't need money ... who the hell is going to pay my health insurance?

I'm very bad tempered when comes to the topic of "Why renaye got no bf". That's because I don't want to have a boyfriend because many guys I met are dumb and dorks and worse still IDIOTS. Do you want a bf that tells you you cannot mix with other guys because I have strong jealousy to contain?

Damn ... where's my invisible potion??!!

License to Kill CONFISCATED
Friday, October 19, 2007
Well I got my blood test result and it was a good news: I'm negative for hyperthyroidism despite having all those symptoms. But my thyroid is still swelling which no medication and methods could shrink it. All I have to do now is to monitor the swellness. If it's making me choke very frequently and giving me breathing difficulty I would have to visit the doctor again. Worse scenario would be undergoing a surgery which my bloody health insurance is not covering.

So people like worm worm can look on the brighther side that I don't have the license to kill so you would be safe but that doesn't mean I could be irritated, annoyed and stress. If you hit all three I would still come after you. So it's not advisable.

However, I have athritis. I'm now officially banned from so many things like drinking cold drinks not even water with room temperature, coffee, tea .... etc... so many I can't be bothered to remember. And speaking of that I just ate ice cream and drank Vanilla Coke. Yum.

Oh well ... life is beautiful to me.

Question and Answer
Wednesday, October 17, 2007
Do you guys still remember my entry about the jerk belittling my leadership skills? I got an alternative answer to his question from a book cover. The answer is in a poem form:

Ignite the fire in your heart.
Its flame will naturally spread
to your friends.
The flame of your passion will
chang people's hearts, and
create a new history.

Simple and direct.

Scholarship entry
Monday, October 15, 2007
Haha. Did the title misinterpret something of me? Yes it is.

It is not me who's trying to obtain a scholarship this year, it's my sister who is cracking her head what to write for her scholarship entry. The question is pretty simple. If I'm not mistaken, the question simply ask what is the subject you wanted to study ... why do you want... how relevant and write records of your leadership skills. That is the question printed the Chevening Scholarship entry form. And my sister is now trying to write in a few hours and submit it within tonight ... Oopps.. I don't think she did.

She has drafted her answer and I checked it. But to be frank I don't have the confidence that hers will attract the judges attention. It just lacks passion and determination of getting the scholarship. The judges never met its candidates before and the only way to pass on their message is through the scholarship entry. Imagine there would be thousands of entries ... and tonnes of answers swimming in the pool of selection. I told my sis directly why hers won't be selected and she is of course upset but it's better to hear the truth now then rejected isn't it?

She could try her luck but what's the point if your entry doesn't even have an everlasting impression on the judges. Ok .. we have all seen realities shows like Runway Project. How did the finalists get through? Same thing. The judges look at your design and pieces.

I'm not sure what did my other collegmates wrote for their scholarship entries but mine gave such an impact to one of the judges that she commented that she has never read an entry like mine before. I don't remember what she said because that was like 5 years ago... I only remembered my mum and sis looking at me with a small O when the female prof/judge commented that. Haha... I need to ask my friends what they wrote in their scholarship entry too...

I don't think it's hard to get a scholarship not because I got one before but because I'm a damn optimistic person. For me, if I want to get a scholarship, I need to be true to myself of why I want to get this scholarship and how can I contribute what I studied to my daily life. Answering those questions would also be my pledge of why I want to study the following course. And I still remember mine before I take my degree.

I just gave some of my ideas to my sister on rewriting the entry. And she was surprised that my head worked fast to link up the connections of why she should get the scholarship and her contributions should she get it.

Oh well I will salute her if she got shortlisted by writing her entry in 30 minutes while mine took one month to draft.

Nothing is impossible!
